Burnham PPS Porky Pie Blooper

Still no apology from Debbie Abrahams following her Eoin Clarke-inspired question to the PM. Andy Burnham’s PPS claimed that Virgin Care was a donor to the Tory party and that it had shareholders on clinical commissioning group boards, allegations Clarke has had to issue a grovelling apology for. With Abrahams ignoring the subject on twitter and elsewhere, a co-conspirator got in touch last night to point Guido towards a tweet from two days ago:

Telling NHS porky pies even when presented with the facts? Talk about eating your words…

    I’m a lot less depressed than I was yesterday. It’s a pity I’ll have to stick a pencil up my nose from time to time over the next couple of years but it’s better than the Big House.

      I am glad you are feeling better today Margaret. I noticed the trial aged you considerably. But fortunately that trip to the pub, revitalised you immeasurably. Careful with the pencils though as damaging your only braincell could be harmful.

        Good luck Margaret, you are inspirational. If I ever get fingered, I will use the ‘Moran’ defence. Boaz.

    Supposing you posted a page and no one came?

    Abraham’s should apologize, and perhaps be fired.

    The sheer white knuckle ride that is blogging summed up in a sentence.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
